Xiaomi’s gaming product line launched a Pro version of Black Shark 2 in a Beijing event, today (July 30). Inspired by Formula 1 Sports Car, the Shark 2 Pro gaming phone adopted the X-design body language and an advanced new-look i.e. aluminum strong body, RGB-illuminated back, and assisting controllers just like standard Shark 2.
Something special which differ standard Shark 2 and it's Pro model is Snapdragon 855+ chipset, dedicated to pro gaming devices by Qualcomm. There are 700MHz Adreno 640 GPU and 8GB RAM for PUBG and Fortnight lovers. Xiaomi didn’t only upgrade hardware but also software to boost performance, thus you are getting CPU and GPU Turbo technologies.
Black Shark 2 Pro goes from 8 gigs to 12GB RAM variant in rival to champ Asus ROG Phone 2. Storage options are only two, 128GB and 256GB. Beware, microSD slot is unavailable.
Coming to the next, Black Shark 2 Pro sports an AMOLED FHD+ Display of 6.39inches, so one can browse, watch and play easily on such a big real estate. Interestingly, the gaming smartphone runs smoothly at a refresh frame rate of 120GHz for the screen, therefore every time we enjoy full-fledged entertainment.
We love Shark’s modern Under-Display Fingerprint Sensing technology, faster and more reliable.
Despite having a 20-megapixels selfie master, there are two rear photography snappers and the primary first is 48-megapixels lens, which offers enhanced low light shots as well as amazing HDR portraits. Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro allows 4k video recording at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps, and Super Slow-mo clips at an incredible 1960fps to let each moment come in.
